GIGABYTE has just unveiled two new members of it s AORUS WATERFORCE family of graphics cards, powered by NVIDIA's new GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER graphics card (my review on the RTX 2080 SUPER Founders Edition, and MSI's custom RTX 2080 SUPER GAMING X TRIO).


The two new graphics cards in question are the AORUS GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER WATERFORCE 8G and GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER WATERFORCE WB 8G, with both featuring cherry-picked TU104 GPUs that are ready for overclocking thanks to the GPUs being certified by GIGABYTE GPU Gauntlet sorting technology.

Inside, the GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER WATERFORCE has not just its TU104 GPU kept cool but the VRAM and MOSFETs are also cooled to ensure stable overclocks and longer lifespans of the cards.

Above we have the AORUS GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER WATERFORCE 8G which features a dual-slot design with an AIO cooler keeping the card chilled, rocking a 240mm radiator and dual 120mm fans with RGB lighting. The AORUS GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER WATERFORCE 8G is also lit up with RGB lighting, and can be configured with the AORUS engine for linked, or non-linked RGB lighting.


The beastier of the two new AORUS cards is the GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER WATERFORCE WB 8G which is a fully-watercooled card and comes with an AORUS water block that covers the GPU, VRAM, and MOSFETs. It rocks even slicker-looking RGB lighting and an "aerospace-grade" PCB coating, too.

Both of the new AORUS WATERFORCE cards have a plethora of video outputs with 7 outputs in total.

GIGABYTE is providing a huge 4-year warranty (3-year standard, and 1-year additional protection for free) as long as you register your card on GIGABYTE's website within the first 30 days of purchase.
